Vain Thoughts

Repent of your vain thoughts. These swarm in your minds as the flies did in Pharaoh's court (Exodus. 8:24). What bewilderings there are in the imagination! If Satan does not possess your bodies, he does your imaginations. "How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?"  
O you saints, be humbled for this lightness in your head.

Exodus 8:24 And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies
Jeremiah 4:14
O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?

Thomas Watson

I hope you are haveing a Hoppy day:) I have been enjoying catching up on a few of your past posts. Thank you for sharing your dinning room trasures. You have a lot of interesting items to make your home pleasant. I remember those ice trays...I have a good memory of snow cream being made in them in the winter.:)
